10 Behaviors That Reveal a Lack of Respect From Your Partner

5. Flirting With Others in Front of You

It’s okay to notice an attractive person even in a committed relationship. However, flirting takes it to a whole new level. If your lover is flirting with others when you’re around, it’s the ultimate disrespect. It’s like they’re saying you’re not good enough and this person is better.

6. Put You Down

There’s always going to be little annoying things about one another that you don’t like. However, your partner should never put you down in front of others. If they’re concerned about your weight, it’s a conversation to have behind closed doors.

A weight issue should be about health more than looks, and they should never incorporate name-calling. When someone puts you down and makes you feel “less than” in front of others, run.

7. They Make Plans That Doesn’t Include You

For the most part, being in a relationship means that you make plans together. While there may be the occasional guys or girl’s night out, typically, your life should be spent doing things as a couple. If one of you is making plans continuously that doesn’t involve the other person, it’s a sign you don’t want to be with them.

It’s very disrespectful and hurtful to be with someone and only see each other at the end of the day. Life is about spending time together, not about sharing a space but living separately.

8. Always On Their Cell Phone

Cell phones, tablets, and laptops have brought a whole new level of disrespect to society. It’s so annoying to try to have a conversation or go to dinner with someone who can’t put down the electronic devices. It isn’t nice to have half of someone’s attention because they’re so involved in social media, texting, or checking emails.

There should always be a set time to put down the electronics and communicate, as it can get old, real fast.

9. Interrupts You While Speaking

There’s nothing more annoying than someone who constantly interrupts you when you’re trying to speak. They’re implying that what you have to say is not as crucial as their thoughts. Don’t let people cut you off, as it’s the ultimate disrespect.

10. Refuses To Apologize

Selfish people are individuals who believe they’re always right. According to the National Centers for Biotechnology Information, these folks often have a grandiose sense of self-importance, as well as shows arrogant, haughty behaviors and attitudes. Even if they know they’re wrong, they will never admit that to you.

However, they probably think they’re right all the time anyway, so they will argue and push their point until you see things their way.

lack of respect

Being with the right person who loves, cherishes, and respects you will bring a whole new meaning to your life. While even the best relationship will have some storms to weather, you do it together and not by tearing each other apart.

When someone shows a lack of respect to you, it can have a long-lasting effect. Not only will the relationship be unhealthy, but it can destroy your self-esteem a little bit with each blow. While relationships are all about compromise, there are some things that you should never compromise on, such as honesty, trust, communication, and respect for one another.
